Haiku Friday – Ill & Rest

3 Apr

It’s funny that the prompt words for this week on RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge is Ill and Rest because I’m home in bed with the flu. I was going to pass on haiku friday this week, but I couldn’t, so this is what I came up with.

Ill will in their hearts

Rotting from the inside out

No rest for haters

    Oh, by the way, I did go to watch Cinderella and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation! (And my Mom loved it too).

    Your words are so accurate, Vashti. “There is no rest for haters” – they are are too busy looking for people to join them. Hope you get well soon.

      Thank you Michelle. Well said, they are busy recruiting all the time. I’m feeling a little better. 🙂 xx

    I hope that by this time, you’re up and around and feeling better, Vashti! What a powerful haiku you’ve written! I’ll be sure to come back and visit to read more of your work 🙂

    I forgot to mention that I love the artwork! Is this yours? It’s just wonderful.


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega April 5, 2015 at 11:37 am #

      It is wonderful but it isn’t mine. I couldn’t find the source but the style is very similar to artist Melanie Delon. She’s the artist I would love to illustrate the cover of my Fantasy Angels Series––a girl can dream. 😉
